    Until a month ago, I was using Mediaportal 1.0.2. under Vista.
    But since Windows 7 is ready, I have chosen to migrate to it.
    This step involved installing Mediaportal 1.1.0 Alpha.

    I got it all working now, but I found it strange that the (analogue) channelnumbers are not the same in 1.1.0 Alpha as in 1.0.2.
    This means that I couldn't do a simple import of the existing xml-file which contains my channel-settings and which I always used in all previous versions of Mediaportal until 1.1.0 Alpha.
    Whereas channel X had channelnumber 24 in MP 1.0.2, it has changed to channelnumber 34 for the same channel in MP 1.1.0 Alpha.

    So basically, I had to re-program all channels.
    Which is a bit of work, but at least, it works.
    I'm wondering what the reason could be of this difference between these 2 versions of Mediaportal.

    For those who are interested in the conversion of channels between MP 1.0.2 and MP 1.1.0 Alpha, I've attached it for my city (which is Denderleeuw in Belgium)

    (btw, I'm using a hauppauge HVR-2200 tv-tunercard)
